Terrebonne sets up hurricane re-entry system

HOUMA, La. (AP) - Terrebonne Parish has a new emergency re-entry process for companies attempting to reopen after a mandatory hurricane evacuation.

The Courier reports placards would replace company picture ID badges and would allow company representatives access to check the status of their businesses as well as prepare them to be reopened after a tropical storm or hurricane.

Approved employees would be part of a system set up by the parish to determine who gets back into an area following a mandatory evacuation.

The first people allowed back into an area would be emergency responders and workers sent to put infrastructure into working order, Terrebonne emergency preparedness director Earl Eues says.
